PORTRAIT OF NESTLÉ CHAIRMAN: Written in German by the author Friedhelm Schwarz, the book will soon be available in English.

A book on the Nestlé Chairman and former CEO, entitled "Peter Brabeck-Letmathe and Nestlé – a portrait. Creating Shared Value”, was released today by the Swiss editing house Stämpfli.
The book was presented by its German author Friedhelm Schwarz to a select audience in Zürich, Switzerland, in the presence of Mr Brabeck-Letmathe.

The portrait touches on themes of importance to Nestlé’s Chairman, such as the Company’s long-term strategy, leadership, innovation, water and Creating Shared Value (CSV). CSV is an integral part of Nestlé’s business strategy – in order for a company to be successful in the long term it has to create value for its shareholders and the communities in which it operates.

The book includes testimonials of well-known personalities such as Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Doris Leuthard, President of the Swiss Confederation, Wolfgang Schüssel, former chancellor of Austria, Helmut Maucher, Honorary Chairman of Nestlé, Rainer E. Gut, Honorary Chairman of Credit Suisse Group and Mr Brabeck-Letmathe’s predecessor as Nestlé Chairman.

The portrait is currently available in German language in bookshops across Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and will soon be available in English.
